"Thirty" - An Acrostic Poem of a Milestone Birthday

I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.

30th Birthday cake

30th Birthday cake


Turning 30 was not something I originally looked forward to.

Happiest moments are not far from the age threshold.

I decided to embrace age 30 instead.

Realized turning 30 isn’t as scary as we’re made to think.

This chapter begins a better one for me than I had experienced in most of my 20s.

Yearned for desires are easily within reach.

It is good to grasp it...turning 30 is a good age.

Lots more coming ahead.

Good read.

Turning 30 is indeed a milestone, however, your clever acrostic poem sums up how wonderful it can be.
